New Hampshire will be at the center of presidential politics on the last day before the election.

Republican nominee Donald Trump and President Barack Obama both plan to campaign in the state on Monday. Obama will campaign on behalf of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Election Day is Nov. 8.

New Hampshire holds four Electoral College votes. Clinton is ahead according to public polling, but Trump appears to be closing the gap in the final days. Winning New Hampshire is critical to his hopes of winning the White House.

Obama is a powerful surrogate to deploy to New Hampshire on the final day. He won New Hampshire twice, defeating John McCain in every New Hampshire county in 2008.
